Mom Has Been Away for 2 Days

Well, Mom has been away for 2 days. First day, I ate one of her dishes stored in our refrigerator. The second day, I was invited to a dinner hosted by one of my colleagues from Shanghai. Tonight, I need to teach English (boys, mine is just so-so) to locals. Tonight, my teaching subject is, this year, Ms. Tu YouYou (81) received the prestigious US Lasker award for discovering a Chinese traditional medicines – sweet wornwood shrub, to eradicate malaria in Africa. The program of using this medicine on the small island of Moheli, off Africa, has proven a huge success.

Well, for day 3, I am going to have more of Mom’s stuff inside my refrigerator.
